Georgia football podcast: 3 UGA assistants that could be coaching stars on the rise

Beginning of the show: The best teams in America are also going to be the programs that employ the best coaching staffs. Georgia is no different. That goes beyond the head coach. Assistants are also key to success, and the Bulldogs have certainly had some prominent assistants including former offensive line coach Sam Pittman, who’s now head coach at Arkansas, and running backs coach Dell McGee — who’s been credited with adding to UGA’s reputation as “RBU.” I’ll discuss on today’s show a few more of UGA coach Kirby Smart’s top lieutenants who could soon make names for themselves.

10-minute mark: DawgNation’s recruiting insider Jeff Sentell joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • Jeff’s thoughts on my list of UGA assistants
  • The latest on four-star athlete Xavian Sorey
  • An update on four-star defensive back Nyland Green
  • UGA baseball commit Bubba Chandler’s offer from Clemson to play quarterback
  • And some memories of legendary former broadcaster Larry Munson

40-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including a war of words through social media between Florida and Tennessee, and a proposal from Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh that’s generated some attention.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater and wish a happy Mother’s Day to the ladies with children who listen to DawgNation Daily.
